A media release about Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom winning the Public Architecture Award on Friday has been published on the Horowhenua District Council. You can read the annoucement here 



We are delighted that the Library /Museum/Community facility project recently completed in Foxton has just be rewarded by the NZIA. The complex project which houses the public Library, a Maori Gallery, a Dutch Gallery, and community facilities has made a welcome impact on the life of the local township. The judges citations reads:

” It is the result of a decade of politicking, but the impact of this wholly appropriate and apparently simple stroke of genius on the town of Foxton has been immense. The architects have “suspended a waka in a Mitre 10 shed”, and in doing so created a community hub around the iconic Windmill, Whare Manaaki and Flax-strippers Museum – bringing iwi and Netherlands’ histories together across a library and connecting the main street town centre back to the river. This project showcases the best of what architecture can contribute to our communities.”

Many thanks to wonderful input from the Horowhenua District Council team and all the volunteers, consultants and contractors, the majority of whom were locally based.

We are delighted that the Langs Cove House we designed received a 2016 Auckland Architecture Award at the NZIA function on April 28th.

The judge’s citation said “…an impressive clerestory skylight punctuates the clean-lined roof plane to provide a wonderful interplay of light on concrete, white walls and American oak floors. ……this is a wonderfully textured house that sits gracefully within its environment…”
